Jared Abbrederis had himself a night in Wisconsin’s 31-24 loss at Ohio State. The veteran wide receiver finished with 10 catches for 207 yards and one touchdown. Several of the receptions were impressive ones, too – none better than his leaping grab in the first quarter. Abbrederis made the grab over a defender and managed to hold despite a hard fall to the turf. See a photo gallery of the catch in this post.

Darien Moran is a big-time Wisconsin football fan. He’s also a 14-year-old battling Histiocytosis, a rare autoimmune disease that causes tumors throughout his body. Moran got involved with Make-A-Wish, and his wish was to have his bedroom turned into a Wisconsin fan’s palace. The place is awesome. Even better: The Badgers did the makeover themselves. Watch the complete feature here. Plus, read Tom Dienhart’s feature on Moran and the Badgers.

Who’s ready to get conference play underway? We sure are! In order to get you ready for Saturday’s Big Ten action, here is a rundown of all four games on the slate and a recap of this week’s news leading up to the big weekend ahead. BTN’s coverage will kick off at 12:00 p.m. ET with Miami (Ohio) at Illinois. That game will also be available on BTN2Go.
Here comes Darien Moran with his red Wisconsin “W” hat flipped backward over his closely cropped hair. Typical 14-year-old, bounding with energy at the start of a new day. Anything seems possible to a teen, even something as big as overcoming a rare disease. And that’s good because that’s exactly what Darien is doing.
